A new royal survey reveals the reasons behind the rising numbers of the royal household.
The royal survey of over 10,000 adults, published in the Guardian, found that one in four people said they have a friend or relative who is a royal.
Of the 10,816 adults who responded, 1,622 (31%) said they had a cousin or other relative who was a royal, while the rest (1,634) said they knew someone who did.
The survey was carried out in April by Ipsos MORI for The Royal Society, and surveyed more than 1,600 adults in the UK.
The results were published on Friday by The Times, with the survey asking respondents to provide their ages, gender, marital status, and a range of other information.
The survey is one of a number of surveys being conducted by the Royal Society which are aimed at revealing more about the royal family and their everyday lives.
It also found that almost half of people (47%) of all ages have a cousin, relative, or friend who is the current ruler of the UK, while 27% said they do not know anyone who does.
The research also found the number of people living in households headed by a married person has risen by a third since 2015.
It found that between 2011 and 2016, there were an estimated 50,000 single people in the United Kingdom.
However, while married people are now the majority of households, they are still a small proportion of the population.
In the year to the end of June, there was an estimated 1.5 million people who were married in the country, while there were 715,000 people living with a partner in a household.
It was also revealed that, while people who are in a committed relationship have a higher risk of having a child, this is less of an issue in families headed by someone else.
The Royal Family are more likely to have a child in a family headed by their partner than married people.
The Royal Society said the survey was an attempt to understand why the UK’s royals have become so popular and why they are not doing as well as people would like them to.
The Royal Household survey was commissioned by the RSPB to highlight the challenges facing the Royal Family as they face growing scrutiny and criticism from the public.
The study is the first time the public has been asked to give their views on the monarchy, with one in five respondents not being aware of the organisation’s role in society.
Theresa May was also the subject of a survey by the pollsters, with nearly half of respondents saying they would vote Conservative if they were asked.
The Guardian contacted The Royal Household for comment, but did not receive a response by the time of publication.
